Press Release

Washington DC - Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA), a senior member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement:

"The Azerbaijani aggression we have seen over the last few days is deeply disappointing. There are a number of news reports indicating that more than 100 Armenians have been killed as a result. Chairman Ed Royce and I urged that Azerbaijan use the opportunity provided by the recent Nuclear Security Summit to advance the peace process.  

"Instead, it appears that Azerbaijan's President Aliyev launched new attacks against Nagorno-Karabakh. I strongly condemn this aggression and believe that U.S. assistance to Azerbaijan be cut off until it ceases its aggression, renounces violence, and commits to a purely peaceful resolution of the conflict."
